the fact we are a community supporting arts. we have introduced, as the first city in the united states, neighborhood cultural centers, as a reflection of not only dealing with art, but making sure that art is focused in the neighborhoods. we really want our community to have the opportunity to participate, to deal with, and actually to become involved with art development. recently the city has found its way to make sure that at least 2% of every new construction in city buildings is preserved for art. and this is kind of an extraordinary thing for a city of our size to do. as a result, we have a wide array of lots of cultural and artistic venues for people to take advantage of. >> i wanted to let sfgtv, we have a powerpoint. >> yes, we do. but i'm not quite ready to use it yet but i will hit that button in just a moment. thank you for reminding me. the reputation and promise of the arts commission has been tarnished recently. and i think by looking at our report and reading it, you get a clear indication of how what was to be an extraordinary part of our art community has found itself

, our city's leadership feels the same way. we are today opening the world's first network of shared electric scooters that you can activate with your smart phone and your phone, it's not just a key to the scooters, it's really a key to the city, it brings everything in the city closer to you, it opens up new neighborhoods that you may not have gone to before and it makes the places you get to every day more fun to get to. for those of us who ride, life before scoot is sort of like life before mobile phones, once you have a short-cut to anywhere in the city in your pocket, you don't really want to go back, so we give you scoot, the world's first network of shared electric scooters and the perfect mode of transportation for the city that leads the world in what's coming next. thank you. [applause]. >> alright.

by our sister city and especially with paris, i was informing the mayor of my first trip to paris, it's been my only trip which is why i have to go officially, but that was 1969 was my very first trip to pear ris as a high school student, as a high school choir of high school in seattle, we raised money all yearlong for us to go, i got to visit the jazz club along the river and then i got to hear for the very first time stevie wonder saying my shari amor in paris, look it up, that's why of course mayor dell way has invited me to be making my first official visit some time next year and certainly charlotte and tom and others have jumped on the occasion, matt and everybody else, but it is one of those relationships that i have understood as being one of the most porn -- important in the city, one is an international status, one we hold dearly because there's a lot to learn, each of our cities as great as they are become greater as our goals of becoming environmentally responsible, creating our opportunity for our economies to fwroe and our dialog in our country is the urban cities that
. they were born in 1967, as i mentioned before, the first in the nation for a city to develop such things. we have four physical buildings, as part of the cultural centers, one in the western addition, one in the bayview, one in mission, and one in south of market. and we have two virtual centers that are located in the south of market building. the charter says that the arts commission is to promote neighborhood arts programs, keep them open, make them continually accessible, and have ties with those programs, with the community. and annually the board of supervisors allocates funds to maintain, operate, and provide security for these cultural centers. and there is an obligation to repair and to maintain them. we were somewhat pleased that in recent days the capital planning committee have submitted a budget which deals with this in some way. and we just hope that those kinds of funds for capital improvements to buildings that are in great need to be rehabilitated will continue, as such as possible. we recommend that the arts commission find its way to engage local communities that are being
a venture firm. the venture fund operates out of new york. it started 15 months ago, we made our first investment in a company called my city way, which is working on intermodal transport. started in new york, now in 35 cities around the country and many cities around the world provided information to not only our customers, but also anyone interested in moving from a to be in a city. that has worked exceedingly well. as you have seen, we have been investing in other companies as well. the electric charging stations system is another one of those. as is our first in this and in parking. most of us leave our house is in the morning, go to work, part of our cars at work, leave a vacant parking space at home. if you can bring a marketplace together where someone can park under drive during the day, and of course, give them a certainty of where they will part, it works. many thousands of customers now are enjoying that has a potential different way of operating in the city. drive now was clocked 15 minutes -- months ago in munich. it is now in three other german cities. we have over 40,000
maintaining it as it is into the future? how do we achieve our transit first vision, and some fo the city's -- poor people choose transit or bicycling for their transit.as an example of the what would it take exercise, lisa the findings of the city's climate action planthese plants are ambitions; with spec expect to have 64.3 billion through 2040 two invest in transportation programs. does not keep up with the system we have today. we have about 9.5 billion committed to projects that are already underway, prioritized in the rtp; these are commitments that are significant improvement in include projects in the construction such as presidio parkway in the central subway, also the downtown extension of caltrans, caltrain electrification as part of the package. there remains a little over this 3 billion in discretionary funds that we need to spread over other needs; new operations, raising the level of repair, programs. by programs i mean day-to-day types of transportation investments that the public is really interesting in when we do a call for projects; every one of two is a resp
district plan has come a long way to get where we are today. i would say the first milestone started back in 2005 bh the city adopted the transbay redevelopment plan that covered part of this plan area but focused on properties along folsom street that were transfer prd the state of california to the city and all this was to the ends of building the new transbay transit center and the downtown neighborhood, at that time and coming out of that plan effort, the city in the inner act si effort led by the mayor's office commissioned a report that recommended the creation aof a new broader area plan that covered a broader area around the transbay transit center to consider the land use patterns in the future of downtown growth in the context of the new transit center project. so, we engage ined that public process for several years, culminating in a draft plan in 2009 and towards the end of 2011, a draft eir was published on the plan and then this may, the planning commission certified the eir and adopted the plan, following that the, the board approved the plan and the mayor signed it and the
francisco clinic city cohort study or the hepatitis b cohort study, that specimens from is that study were used to develop the very first hiv antibody test to where a link to the past and the future. so, we're a link to the past and the future, and more than anything we're a link to the community. and our motto is where science meets community. our team does really cutting edge research on different kinds of prevention strategies, pre-exposure prophylaxis. and if you go to our website, join prep hiv, you'll see all of the many exciting studies that we have as well as our partnership with san francisco city clinic in launching the first demonstration project of pre-exposure prophylaxis, taking antihiv medicines to prevent new infections. we're studying topical gels, retro microbicide. the way we're going to end this epidemic is through a vaccine, we've controlled other infectious diseases through a cure. we're proud of our staff who contribute to this as well as the many study participants. and i'm just going to close with a quick word about the project. the way that this project came about
at projects and impacts on parks. >> john from the city attorney's office, i've had a chance to review the letter and i would just like to make a few points about that. the first is that the letter sort of co-mingles what are common terms that are used both in the environmental analysis and ceqa process as well as in section 295, this is something the commissions grapple with. every time a shadow decision comes before it, but the terms of what's considered significant and insignificant under ceqa or adverse impacts under ceqa are different decisions, different analysis, different factors come into play. when those sixes are decisions are made in the process of 295 analysis prop k, so i wanted to point that out. i think the staff memo that you received does touch on this briefly as well. i did also want to point out that commissioner sugaya raised another city attorney opinion, i just wanted to point out that addressed sort of a different question than the issue that is are before you today, so i don't think that that has bear -- bearing on today's decision, but i wanted to point out s

base the on the 50.8 million dollars but adjusted for changes in the city's general fund revenue. the city would use the fund to build, purchase and improve affordable housing, provide 15 million dollars for a loan program for down payment assistance for moderate income home buyers and emergency first responders and provide up to 15 million dollars for a program that would help eligible households avoid foreclosure. proposition c would change the affordable housing requirement for private residential developments in two ways. first, it would reduce the on site affordable housing requirement to approximately 12 percent for most projects. second, it would prohibit the city from increasing affordable housing requirements beyond those in place on january 1st, 2013. proposition c would authorize the development of up to 30,000 low income rental units in the city. i'm here with peter cohen, executive director of the council of community housing organizations, and a proponent of proposition c also joining us is starchild, local activist with the libertarian party of san francisco and
's what we have to do first, is have a good economic foundation in which to grow. for the first time in years you've seen a lot of unity move around this city between business and labor, between the laib and the board of supervisors. we've all come together to tax reform, on housing, on fixing our parks and open space. we've got this year coming together in unprecedented way to put these issues on the ballot before the voters and make sure it's the right time for all of us to be smart, to make long-term investments in housing and in parks and it is time to do tax reform. together we're putting people back to work, building our city at the same time and now the tax structure has to be addressed. a lot of people keep asking me, what is this tax reform? it's kind of complicated. and i tell them it's about real people, real businesses and real jobs. because it is now that we're the only city in the state of california that's got a payroll tax. we're still taxing job creation, opposite of what we've all wanted to do many if not most of you have complained for years, why are we doing
business tax. over a decade ago, a lawsuit forced our city to use a business tax that is problematic for many reasons. first and foremost, it is a tax on jobs. every time a local employer hires someone there is a business payroll tax that's levied on that person. secondly, it is a tax that is only levied on 10 percent of all businesses and many of these are small businesses who have really been asking for reform for many many years. currently we are the only city in the state of california that uses this business payroll tax. our city government, we spent 6 months earlier this year in conversations with many leaders within the community to propose a change to a so-called gross receipts tax, which is superior on a number of levels. first and foremost, it's a tax on revenue. it's a tax on profit. it's also a progressive tax, unlike the current flat tax it's a tax that exempts small businesses that have revenues of less than a million dollars but it also increases taxes for our most successful and our largest businesses. then the last thing i will mention, it is a tax that will help
